What do I need to get TinyGentoo booting with kernel messages redirected to the serial console.

I have my TinyGentoo booting fine on a board that has a VGA out. I now need to use it on a board with just serial console. I know normally i can edit inittab to redirect a TTY to the serial port. However, do I need a getty application. If so which one? Obviously I want to keep the foot print of the whole thing as small as possible.

In fact, what I really want is for my console application to be shown after booting over the serial console and only kernel messages during the development of the app.
